What is inside the October CC Beauty box
Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser – I have always heard good things about the hot cloth cleanser so I was excited to see this inside the box, Liz Earle skincare range is amazing and works so well on my skin and the hot cloth cleanser is equally as good. The size of the tube really shocked me as it is the huge full sized 100ml bottle that retails at £20.00, this is very good value for money and who doesn’t love skincare.
I applied this to my face and used my own warm cloth to wipe off leaving nourished brighter soft skin, this cleanser contains rosemary, chamomile, and eucalyptus to get rid of the days impurities. This can also wipe off any waterproof makeup including waterproof mascara! Verdict 9/10.
Cargo Cosmetics Around The World Palette – This palette is gorgeous with colours that suit me so I was excited to start using this, 12 gorgeous colours are 6 matte and 6 shimmer colours that work well together. The palette works as quads too the 4 in a square can be used all together to create a dramatic smokey look, using the matte and shimmer together.
You receive a dual ended brush in the palette so you can apply these straightaway even if you are out and about as there is also a handy mirror on the lid. Personally for me I love this palette the colours are amazing and last so well with no creasing. Verdict 9/10.
Make Up Forever Precision Eyebrow Brush – The little brush packs a punch, it really is a precision brush with strong bristles to apply brow powder or for lightening underneath the brow. The brush is well made of wood and metal…even when cleaned the bristles hold up well. I love this little brush and it is part of my daily routine for my brows. Verdict 8/10.
Makeup Forever Aqua Gel Liner – What a sparkly gel liner, it is a thin pen for that perfect winged eye look or for getting close to your eye is a lot easier with gel…however this is green in colour. For me I would have preferred a black or brown or even gold or silver colour but as I have green eyes I cannot use a green Liner.
I will be using this as part of my halloween makeup but I wouldn’t use it as a staple in my makeup bag…I am looking at other colours as I had a quick try and it does work really well, just a shame about the colour. Verdict 7/10.
This CC Beauty box is a first for me and I have enjoyed the contents and the fact that these are all full sizes that normally cost quite a bit…this boxes contents are around £65.00 which is awesome as the box only costs £29.99 and if you use the code 1STBOX20OFF you will get 20% off. If you have had this box before let me know what you received.
